Détails au sujet de l'organisation d'accueil : The UCT Law Clinic provides outstanding practical legal training to senior law students while at the same time rendering free legal assistance to impoverished communities who would not otherwise have access to professional legal services.

The Clinic operates as a fully functioning law practice and employs a professional staff of five attorneys and one candidate attorney.

The Clinic has two sections: a litigation practice, which offers students their first opportunity of dealing directly with clients and gaining first-hand experience of court procedures, and a refugee office, which gives students the chance of assisting asylum seekers with their legal problems.
